November 12, 2023, 62, La Grange —
November 4, 1961 – November 12, 2023
Judy Ann Holland Holt peacefully slipped away from time into eternity on November 12, 2023. Judy was the daughter of the late Vernon Clark and Martha Brothers Holland. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her step-father whom she dearly loved, Irv Holland.
Education was of utmost importance to Judy. She attended Atlantic Christian College, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Sociology from East Carolina University. Putting her passion for education into play, Judy was a professor at Lenoir Community College.
With an appreciation of fashion, Judy believed in presenting herself with properly styled hair and makeup whenever she went out. Even through her illness, she continued putting forth the effort to be well put together. She had a love of vintage jewelry and always knew how to pair it with the right outfit. Her creativity sparked as she began making her own jewelry, and even into her love of painting.
Judy possessed a tender heart that prompted her to open her home to several well-loved pets throughout the years. She was a devoted daughter and caretaker in her mother’s final years. Though her circle was small, Judy maintained several friendships that became lifelong and loyal. Judy was most proud of her daughter, Jenny. She remained her biggest cheerleader throughout her life.
Judy is survived by her daughter, Jenny Holt; brother, Jeff Clark and wife, Sue; as well as many family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Judy’s memory may be made to Alzheimer’s Disease Research Treatment, Celiac Disease Research and Treatment, or Kitty Askins Hospice Center, 107 Handley Park Court, Goldsboro, NC 27534.
